Scanned the negative in for this recently. One of those wtf moments. Walking through a Melbourne suburb back in 1988 I stumbled on this scene. Someone had bought the front of a S Class Diesel locomotive from Victorian Railways (I just googled that bit), put it in their front garden and arranged the roof and the wall to look like it had smashed through their front living room. 10/10 for effort!

Welcome to 1918, a bygone year in time holding the record for worst train tragedies in U.S. history. And note the plural; there were 3. In a single year, years of careful construction yielded calamitous results, resulting in the untimely deaths of hundreds of innocent individuals.
